    one or more patents that:
  • were registered not less than 1 year before the time of invitation.; and
  • were used in the day to day activities of the main business;

Registered Patent:

A registered patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a state (a national government) to an inventor or their assignee in relation to an invention, which may be a product or a process, for a certain limited period, in exchange for public disclosure of the invention.

If invited to lodge a visa application, the client will be expected to provide the patent documents issued by the relevant national or regional intellectual property administration office to evidence their claimed ownership of a patent. The patent documents should include sufficient information that allows an assessment of whether the applicant’s claimed ownership of a patent meets the attribute for the award of points.


One or more registered designs
    one or more registered designs that:
  • were registered not less than 1 year before the time of invitation; and
  • were used in the day to day activities of the main business

Registered Design:

A registered design is concerned with the appearance of products if they are new and distinctive i.e. the features of shape or configuration which have been incorporated in the product or the features of pattern or ornamentation applied to a product. Registration provides the right to prevent unauthorized parties in applying the design (or a design which is substantially similar in overall impression to the registered design) to products in respect of which the design is registered, and to prevent certain commercial dealings in such products bearing the design or a sufficiently similar design, for a certain limited period.

If invited to lodge a visa application, the client will be expected to provide documentary evidence issued by the relevant national or regional intellectual property administration office to evidence their claimed ownership of a registered design. The documents should include sufficient information that allows an assessment of whether the applicant’s claimed ownership of a registered design meets the attribute for the award of points.


one or more registered trade marks
    one or more registered trade marks that:
  • were registered not less than 1 year before the time of invitation; and
  • were used in the day to day activities of the main business
Trademark:

A trademark typically protects brand names and logos used on goods and services.

A trademark can be a letter, number, word, phrase, sound, smell, shape, logo, picture, aspect of packaging or any combination of these, used to distinguish goods and services of one business from those of another. The purpose of registering a trademark is to prevent competitors of your business from stealing your business name, logo, or slogan. If invited to lodge a visa application, applicants are expected to provide documentary evidence issued by the relevant national or regional intellectual property administration office to evidence their claimed ownership of a registered trademark. The documents should include the following information that allows an assessment of whether the applicant’s claimed ownership of a registered trademark meets the attribute for the award of points.

Evidence of joint venture agreements:
    each of the following applied:
  • at least one main business in which the applicant held an ownership interest operated in accordance with a formal joint venture agreement entered into with another business or businesses;
  • the joint venture agreement had been entered into not less than 1 year before the time of invitation to apply for the visa;
  • the applicant utilised his or her skills in actively participating at a senior level in the day to day management of the business
Joint Venture Agreement:

A joint venture is a commercial undertaking entered into by two or more parties, usually in the short term, for the purpose of a particular activity.

Joint Ventures:

Joint ventures may be in various forms. An incorporated joint venture is a company in which the joint venture parties have shareholdings proportional to their joint venture interests, while an unincorporated joint venture is where the joint venture parties enter into a contractual relationship to pursue a particular activity together without forming a separate legal entity. Joint ventures may also take the form of unit trusts or partnerships.

Parties to a joint venture often carry on their principal business independently of, and at the same time, as the joint venture. Joint ventures are becoming increasingly common as businesses co-operate with each other in international markets, in order to share costs, exploit new technologies, or gain access to new markets.

Evidence of export trade:
at least one main business held by the applicant derived not less than 50% of its annual turnover from export trade in at least 2 of the 4 fiscal years immediately before that time

The client should indicate if their main business(es) is/are involved in export trade.
Points are awarded to applicants if the applicant had an ownership interest in one or more main businesses that derived at least 50 per cent of their annual turnover from export trade for at least 2 of the 4 fiscal years immediately before the time of invitation.
Example:
A business that made one or more shipments of goods to another country (egg via a sale on E-bay) would not be awarded points for their export activities, unless exporting is a regular part of their business activities and 50% of their turnover comes from exports.
Export Trade:
Export trade refers to the sale of goods across the national borders of one country to another.
Export trade for the purposes of the Points Test refers to the sale of goods across the national borders of one country to another, and does not include the export of services. As such, businesses providing services in the exporting process such as freight forwarders, regardless of whether their services may be considered to be ‘exported’ in the sense of being provided to residents of another country, are not considered to be engaging in export trade and will not be awarded points.
Export Agents:
An exporter may use an agent in carrying out its export transactions. An export agent provides to the exporter (owner of the exports) services in the exporting process such as preparing and lodging the requisite customs documentations, but is not itself engaging in export trade.
For a business that operates as an export agent engaging in the provision of services instead of sale of goods to the public, only the amount of the service revenue (as opposed to the sale value or invoiced value of the goods) is to be counted towards the turnover of the business. That is, the revenue of an export agent relates to the services it provides, rather than to the sale of goods from one country to another, and as such the turnover of an export agent does not relate to export trade and cannot be included.
Gazelle businesses:
    the applicant had an ownership interest in at least one main business that:
  • (a) was established not more than 5 years the time of the invitation; and
  • (b) had an average annualised growth in turnover that was greater than 20% per annum over 3 continuous fiscal years; and
  • (c) in at least one of the 3 fiscal years mentioned in paragraph (b) employed 10 or more employees for a total number of hours that was at least the total number of hours that would have been worked by 10 full-time employees

The client should indicate if their main business meets the definition of a 'gazelle business'. Gazelle businesses refer to newly established businesses experiencing rapid growth over a short period of time. A gazelle business may be defined as “any business up to five years old with average annualised growth in turnover greater than 20% per annum over a three-year period, and with ten or more employees at the beginning of the observation period.”
Points are awarded to applicants if their main business has been registered for no more than 5 years at the time of the invitation, with average annualised growth in turnover greater than 20 per cent annually over 3 continuous fiscal years and with at least 10 full time employees for at least 1 fiscal year in the same consecutive 3 year period claimed for growth in turnover.
Evidence of receipt of grants or venture capital funding:
    the applicant, or at least one main business in which the applicant held an ownership interest:
  • (a) had received a grant that:
    • (i) was awarded for the purposes of early phase start up of a business, product commercialisation, business development or business expansion; and
    • (ii) was at least AUD10 000; and
    • (iii) was awarded by a government body in the applicant’s home country; and
    • (iv) had been received not more than 4 years immediately before that time; or
  • (b) had received venture capital funding of at least AUD100 000 not more than 4 years before the time of the invitation for the purposes of early phase start up of a business, product commercialisation, business development or business expansion

The client should indicate if they or their main business received any funding grants for innovation or received any venture capital funding.
Points are awarded if the applicant or their main business is awarded a government grant of at least AUD 10 000, or provided venture capital funding of at least AUD 100 000, for the purposes of early phase startup of a business, product commercialisation, business development or business expansion, received within the 4 years immediately before the time of invitation.
Examples of grants:
1. A grant of $50,000 from the Screen Australia's Digital Ignition Fund was awarded to a production company to develop an interactive garden appliance for children
2. A grant of $12,600 from the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme Program (NEIS) was awarded to a consultant towards revamping the company website and expanding their marketing campaign
3. A grant of $20,000 was awarded to a tiling company for a feasibility study / business advice / business plan from the Western Australia Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) to expand into the commercial tiling market
Example for Venture Capital Funding:
Venture capitalists provide the finance, at least initially, so that the ideas of innovators and entrepreneurs can be developed and brought to market. In Australia, venture capital has helped create and grow many innovative firms, including Austal (the world’s leading manufacturer of fast ferries and passenger water craft), Wizard Home Loans, and Seek (the internet job-advertising service).
Grants:
For the purposes of the Points Test, a government grant is taken to be monetary assistance provided by a government or a government agency, whether local, national or international, upon specified conditions. Only monetary assistance is envisaged for the purposes of the points test although it is recognised that government grants may also take the form of non-monetary assistance such as where the government provides a piece of land for factory development. Government assistance may also take other forms such as the provision of guarantees, tax incentives, low interest/interest free loans, free services or free advice. These forms of assistance are not considered to be government grants for the award of points.
Points are awarded to clients where the client or their main business is awarded a government grant of at least AUD10,000 , or is provided venture capital of at least AUD100,000, received within the last four years immediately before the time of invitation.
Venture Capital Funding:
Venture capital is finance provided to entrepreneurs or companies that have very high growth potential but are in the very early stages of developing their business or commercialising their idea, in return for an equity stake in the business.
Source of Funding
The venture capital may be sourced from any venture capital firms without the requirement that the firm be a member of a professional private equity and venture capital association. However, applicants are expected to provide evidence that the provider of the capital is an entity engaging in venture capital activities.
Has the client, or client’s business venture, commenced negotiations or have an agreement in place to receive funding for at least AUD 200,000?
For clients intending to apply in the Entrepreneur stream it is a requirement that they or their business venture have an agreement to receive funding for at least AUD 200,000 from a specified third party.
State or territory nomination - Special endorsement (limited places):
    the nominating State or Territory government agency had determined that the business proposed by the applicant was of unique and important benefit to the State or Territory where the nominating government agency is located

The client should indicate the number of years of experience in business or investment they have had. Clients interested in the Business Innovation stream should only indicate the number of years of experience in business. Clients interested in the Investor stream can indicate the number of years of experience in business or investment.

Business Innovation stream
Consider the following factors when indicating the number of years:
the client must have a demonstrated history of business experience
the years of business experience must have been gained in the previous 7 years for maximum points or in the previous 4 years for lesser points
the client must have had direct involvement in managing one or more main businesses in order for the business experience to be considered
the client must have maintained direct and continuous involvement in the management of the business from day to day and in making decisions affecting the overall direction and performance of the business
Example:

Mr X is expressing an interest in a visa under the Business Innovation stream. Mr X has owned and operated a main business, Cool Shop Pty Ltd, for 5 years. Prior to his commencement in business, he had managed his investments (shares and a real estate portfolio) for another 3 years. Only 5 years of Mr X's business experience can be counted towards the awarding of points under the Points Test.

Investor stream

Consider the following factors when indicating the number of years:
the client must have a demonstrated history of investment experience
the client must have exercised responsibility in making key decisions concerning the evaluation, selection, purchase and sale of investments
the years of investment experience must have been gained in the previous 7 years for maximum points or in the previous 4 years for lesser points
the eligible investment which was held for the number of years claimed must have had a value of not less than AUD100,000
Example:

Mr Y is expressing an interest in a visa under the Investor stream. Mr Y has owned and operated a main business, Cool Shop Pty Ltd, for the last 5 years. Besides running the business, he has managed his investments (shares and a real estate portfolio). He acquired the share and real estate portfolio 3 years prior to the commencement of his business 5 years ago. Under the Investor stream, Mr Y can claim points for his investment experience. He will thus be awarded the maximum points for his 8 years experience of investment history.
